Summary (From the publisher):

THE GENIUS OF ASIMOV
For over half a century, Isaac Asimov's stunning vision of humanity's future in the galaxy has amazed and delighted millions of readers worldwide. From his tales of near-future, near-human positronic robots, to his vast sagas of Galactic Empire and Foundation, Asimov's legacy of imagination will live on for years to come.

Now, in a very special tribute to Asimov's creation, seventeen of today's foremost sf talents explore this epic chronicle, making fresh and enlightening contributions to the most famous and popular science-fictional universe. Include here are Orson Scott Card, Frederik Pohl, Robert Silverberg and Harry Harrison - writers who have built up strong reputations for far-reaching invention and dazzling story-telling.

For all those fascinated with fresh ideas, world creation and with Asimov himself, Foundation's Friends is essential reading. It is also a fitting recognition of the impact this science-fiction master has made on twentieth-century thinking and a whole generation of rising new writers.
